If you're running SQL Server, it says something important about you. First of all, your data is important, 'cause you probably didn't pick that tool up at a yard sale. Your business probably depends on all the stuff you've got stashed away in your databases. And if it all went away tomorrow, you'd most likely be on the next train out of town.

Backing up your data is important. If you're looking at a hard drive or a network volume, it's easy to copy a bunch of files or point some backup tool at your data and save it all, just in case. Databases, on the other hand, aren't quite so easy. These guys are a complicated combination of applications, data files, and all the glue that helps hold these things together. That's why it may be easier to backup the database in a different way, namely by storing the ability to recreate that database. That's a job for SQL Script Generator.

When you back up a database with this app, you literally are creating a script that will recreate that database, complete with all the arcane CREATE and INSERT SQL commands and the necessary data to rebuild your database from the ground up. If you prefer, you can pick and choose which chunks of data to save as well.

SQL Script Generator is a free download. It's a Windows app and runs under Windows 2000 and later, and can deal with databases on SQL Server 2005 and later.
